A week in, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is not going to plan for Vladimir Putin, but there is nevertheless destruction and sadly much death. The biggest nuclear power station in Europe, Zaporizhzhia, is now controlled by Russian forces. It could provoke a nuclear disaster six times the size of Chernobyl. Elsewhere, there are reports that the capital Kyiv is being bombarded. Putin claims it isn't Russian troops that are doing so, but does anyone believe him? Our guests look back at a harrowing week of war.
